You need to drag a tab - Safari won't let you drag an entire window into another one. You can hit ⌘T to create a new empty tab (thus making the tab interface visible), then drag your original tab to the other window.

Go to Window → Merge All Windows. In Safari, this merges other windows into the currently active window. In Finder, this merges the current windows into other window. Alternatively, you can show the tab bar with View → Show Tab Bar. This lets you drag the tab when only one tab in a window is open.

The answer is no, Safari does not provide any built-in functionality or shortcut (to the non-existing functionality) to restore the last closed tab. The only functionality that Safari currently offers is: Reopen last closed window Undo Close Tab (as part of the Undo event chain) The first does just that, re-opens the last closed window, including all ...

Go to Preferences → Tabs and enable When a new tab or window opens, make it active. Enabling this option switches the shift modifier to disabling this functionality rather than enabling it.

Shift-CMD-F is for presentation mode and will hide the tabs. You want full screen mode instead, so use Control-CMD-F. Tabs will show in full screen mode.

Put one of these snippets in your userChrome.css file, depending on your Firefox version: Firefox 29 (Australis) .tabbrowser-tab[pinned][titlechanged]:not([selected="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content { background-image: none !important; } Pre-29 #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab > .tab-stack > .tab-background * { background: none ...

Glims for Safari is your friend. After installation go to Safari > Preferences > Glims > Tabs Misc. and check "Set minimum tab labels size to favicon size". You'll get something like this…

iTerm 2 is a powerful replacement for Terminal.app and it has support for AppleScript. You can use AppleScript to tell it to run commands in a new tab or window. For example, let's make a little AppleScript action that's callable. Enter the following in to the AppleScript Editor: on run argv set AppleScript's text item delimiters to {" "} tell ...

Here is the beginning of a very simple AppleScript that will open a new tab at the end of the current window, and then it will load a URL. The script will wait 5 seconds (to allow the page to load) and then it will close that tab. I am still working on it, but this should do it for you. Let me know if you need some more help, or if you would like me to ...

I've set up the same 3 finger middle click gesture in BTT and it works great with Glims for Safari's middle click to close setting.

I've never experienced this in Safari, and I expect there is some sort of conflicting shortcut. Either that, or "quite frequently" your mouse focus is in Flash or Java, and shortcuts aren't being sent to the browser (which doesn't seem terribly likely given the frequency). Due to having switched to Safari after several years in a row of using Chrome and ...

I'm not sure of an elegant solution, but choosing to always show the tab bar will never have to increase the size of the window, since it would always be there

There is an old trick I learned on a help desk well over 10 years ago which USUALLY still works. In the problematic document, turn on paragraph marks. It's in the ribbon under "Paragraph." or Press COMMAND-* (Mac) or CTRL-* (PC) [EG SHIFT COMMAND/CTRL 8]. Select All in the document. Use the edit menu or click in the document and COMMAND-A (Mac) or CTRL-A ...

The answer has been found here: Ribbon tabs in Office/Word/Excel 2011 stop working While the majority of the tab isn't clickable, the very top edge of the tab is. So just click on its top border. It is slightly inconvenient, but better than risking the destruction of your installation. I've posted the remark on the Microsoft community forum. Hopefully ...

In OSX Terminal, hold down the keys ⌘+Shift while arrowing right or left. This will allow you to switch between active tabs. When on the tab you wish to close, as you noted, ⌘+w will close that tab.

It is not possible to get a record with a single object specifier, but you can get a list: tell application "Safari" {URL, name} of tabs of windows end tell -- {{{"http://url1", "title 1"}, {"http://url2", "title 2"}}} For a record, you can use a repeat loop: set r to {} tell application "Safari" repeat with t in tabs of windows set end ...

The middle click to close tab functionality isn't really a common OS X UI pattern. The standard keyboard shortcut for closing a tab is command ⌘W (which will also close non-tabbed windows, or windows with only one open tab). If you really want a Magic Trackpad gesture for closing tabs, you could use BetterTouchTool to map a gesture to ⌘W, but it would still ...

Go to the network preferences, select "Wi-Fi", and click "Advanced..." (you may have to click the lock in the bottom left first). Then, in the "Preferred Networks" list, delete any that you don't want. The passwords are saved separately, in the keychain. I have verified that removing an SSID from the list in the network preferences doesn't remove it from ...

Until Chrome comes up with that function like FF, the closest you can get to it is to Disable lots of bandwidth and storage consuming apps. That can be done here: Also go to your chrome://plugins/ and disable all Plugins you do not want. That will not stop the background loading of the page but will limit the what, and you can still use them at your ...
